Socoder -> Off Topic -> PMC - Draw to Image?

Did I read somewhere that in PMC you can draw onto an image?

Check out my excellent homepage!

You used to be able to grab the current canvas, but I think incompatibility issues might've made DD remove that feature.

You could never grab the current canvas. You could however grab a copy, using getScreenshot() (that should really be under graphics rather than utility). It copies the screen to a new image, and returns it.

However the proper way is to just create an image, and draw to it. All of the global graphics commands area available as methods for the Image class.

For example ...

You can tell I don't read instructions, can't you! *Jay continues to fumble through PMC, adding ;s to the ends of his lines*

You're not the only one Jay, I don't read instructions in any great detail either.

That's why I love coding in languages that aren't proprietary;
once I know the basics, I can Google my way to 98% of the stuff I'm wondering about.

It's about as propriety as Java, or C#. Both of them were developed by one company, and initially closed source (and Quby is open source now).

"Proprietary" in the sense that Java and C# has millions of users and hundreds of thousands of tutorials and/or previously asked questions on any given aspect.

Real world example: Just now I was wonder which was faster: Dictionary.ContainsKey() or Dictionary.TryGetValue()
Because of C#'s widespread usage, I didn't have to time the (assumed) bottleneck myself - I could just google it.

That's not the definition of proprietary.

Proprietary Programming Language Definition.

A programming language that has been developed privately by a manufacturer for its own brand of robots.

Amazing how Google can enlighten the mind. (Linkage)

"Bigger" languages then. That doesn't carry the right connotation either.
